At Healthy Happy Kidz we work with Local Authorities to provide youngsters with the best possible opportunities during the Summer, Christmas and Easter school holidays. We host an Active programme which we have named 'Fit and Fed' that includes a wide range of sports and activities along with a daily healthy meal. The primary aims of the programme are to reduce isolation and ‘holiday hunger' for children aged 5 to 14 years who are in receipt of benefit based Free School Meals (FSM).
We offer age-appropriate physical fun and enriching activity that provide children with an opportunity to develop new skills or knowledge, to consolidate existing skills and knowledge, or to try out new experiences, and one element of nutritional education aimed at improving children’s knowledge and awareness of healthy eating on every day and with food education for families and carers. The scheme has been heavily influenced by Premiership footballer Marcus Rashford.
We are focused to supporting the HAF programme, and we continue to support young people with Special Educational Needs, learning & physical difficulties. We want to support more families by way of help from school partnerships and SENCOs.
To add extra value to children that attend we also include enrichment activities that can include Sea safety, Internet safety, Nutrition/cooking workshops, Guest speakers, Football freestyler workshop and Performance, Family Activities, Local Attraction trips, Kids entertainment, tickets to football matches etc.
We also encourage older children aged 12-16 to our venues, we have identified the gap in this age group who have chosen to not take up the opportunity. We intend to run a TEST provision for this age group across evening sessions where activities such as: go carting, gym sessions, motivational speaker “Dan Magness” cv writing( preparing for employment), barbering & hairdressing demonstrations are included.
